THANK YOU Hochelaga Alumni and Families!
Camp Hochelaga's clay courts are in desperate need of replacement. With the generous support of our alumni and camper families we have now raised the funds needed to break ground on this project in June 2020!
Imagine the Passion We Will Inspire!
We're excited to announce we've met our goal for funds needed to replace camp's tennis courts with an asphalt multi-use court like the one pictured here and a new sand volleyball court! This summer, we will be able to grow programs that support campers in feeling strong, confident, and healthy.
HELP REPLACE THE TENNIS COURTS
CAMP HOCHELAGA STRIVES TO OFFER SAFE, EMPOWERING, STRENGTH-BUILDING SPORTS PROGRAMS TO ALL OF OUR CAMPERS!
Camp's Tennis Courts are in desperate need of replacement. In their current state, they are no longer safe for campers and staff to play on. We are excited to announce that with the committed support of our alumni and camper family communities we have raised the $37,000 needed to put in a long lasting asphalt sport court and fun-inspiring sand volleyball court this summer!
Camp Hochelaga will break ground on this much needed improvement in JUNE, 2020.
Tennis and other sport courts have been a strong part of Camp Hochelaga programming since camp started in 1919. We need your help to keep this programming alive and thriving for our campers. Having positive experiences playing sports at camp can instill life-long passions for athleticism in girls that will support them in living healthy lives and developing healthy habits for years to come.
"I love coming back to 'Laga because camp friends are friends like no other. By the end of the first day, you basically are best friends and by the end of the first week, you are pretty much sisters. I love all my 'Laga sisters!"
"It's like a second home. There are so many activities! When I get home, I will be campsick! I love Camp Hochelaga"
"Hochelaga is special because each time I come I meet new people, learn new things, and by the time I'm home, I'm campsick. Everything is exciting because Hochelaga has helped me become open to more new things. My cabin is my bedroom, and Hochelaga is my family! Everyone is kind and caring and the songs warm my heart"
"It's a really safe place to be. Everyone here is nice! Lots of bugs though..."
"I love Hochelaga. It's the place where I know I can be myself"
SUPPORT IMMEDIATE NEEDS & ONGOING PROJECTS
Replace the Tennis Courts: $37,000 total project cost
GENEROUS DONORS HAVE HELPED US RAISE THE FULL $37,000 NEEDED ALREADY! GROUND BREAKING IN JUNE, 2020
Tennis has been a part of Camp Hochelaga tradition for many decades. Campers and staff of all ages have played hard and honed their skills on camp's beloved clay courts. As Camp Hochelaga enters her 101st year, the clay courts are in need of updating. Camp Hochelaga will break ground on this much needed improvement in June, 2020. We are so grateful for the support and generosity of our alumni and camper families!
Put a New Roof on a Cabin: $2,000 per roof - ONLY 4 LEFT TO GO!
With the support of generous, dedicated alumnae and donors, Camp Hochelaga has already replaced 8 of our 14 cabin roofs with long-lasting, weather proof metal roofs. Help us meet our goal to replace the remaining 6 cabin roofs!
Add a New Sailboat to the Fleet: $4,000 per boat
Camp Hochelaga's sailing program is growing! We are striving to add 2 Hobie Waves to the fleet for summer 2020.
In addition to the facility needs listed above, Camp Hochelaga is also working to grow supplies in many of our most loved camp programs.
